    Question

    How to find the total number of authority records in Voyager?

    Answer

    For each authority record in the database, there is one row in the table AUTH_MASTER. Query for total number of rows in this table to retrieve the number of authority records.

    1. Open Prepackaged Reports
    2. Create new query in SQL view.
    3. Enter query for number of rows in table (see Additional Information)

    Additional Information

    Query for number of rows in AUTH_MASTER:

    select count(*)
    from AUTH_MASTER;


    Note that a similar query can be run on BIB_MASTER to retrieve number of bibliographic records in database.
